No, this is not the most random thing I could think of, I'm actually serious!
If anyone saw the one show last night will have seen a story about how this lady is rescuing battery hens thet have outlived their life as egg layers (as they no longer lay one per day)
This missus then turns to me and says can we have a pet hen? FFS!
We have ample room in the garden and it's a better pet than a cat for our little one, just wondering if anyone else has experience in keeping hens, I must admit I do like the idea of cooking using my own free range eggs and helping a bird thats been in lock up most of it's life (not the austrian type though) but what are downsides/ things to take into consideration? I'll be lookin up various websites but just wondered if anyone knew on here.
Next thread.... names, I think colonel and sanders is pretty heartless :lol:
